Natural by Nature
Fish and crustaceans in the wild need carotenoids to survive; these in turn, are responsible for the characteristic colors in salmon and shrimp. In aquatic environments the only organisms that can synthesize carotenoids are algae, fungi and bacteria such as Paracoccus carotinifaciens. In aquaculture, carotenoids must be included in the diet and Panaferd® is the only ingredient that offers the same source of carotenoids as in nature and produced free of chemicals or GMO. Panaferd® as a part of your farm raised livestock’s diet builds trust and value for your products.
“We use Panaferd because we have customers that cares about sustainable farming, and the natural colorant we get from Panaferd has a better color then the synthetic.”
